    For some individuals with executive function deficits, difficulties may be experienced when executing step-by-step procedures involving cognitive and motor skills. In this paper, we describe the design of a mobile application prototype, developed using a participatory-based approach, in order to enable individuals with executive function deficits to practice ordering steps within common-tasks. The long-term aim is to determine whether users are able to transfer the knowledge gained from using the application to the real world, in order to promote levels of independence. Lessons learned from conducting a participatory approach with individuals with executive function deficits are described.
